So... IMHO the TV portrayal of Daenerys is sooo different to book Daenerys.

What does everyone think: Rampaging brat or BAMF?

a few people I've spoken to who watch the series but haven't read the book complain how obnoxious she is. I can understand that. I don't think you can read the book and not have sympathy for the enormous trauma and pressure she is put under. The series can't adequately portray this - and its not helped by the fact that in the book she is only 13, and in the series they use an actress who is clearly in her 20s.

In the tv series they changed the timeline so Robert's rebellion took place 3 years earlier

Wow. That could mess a few plot lines up.

I've only seen the first episode so far (/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />) but I was rather dismayed by how old she looked. And not quite as... ethereal as I imagined her.
